Schistocerca americana aka American Bird Grasshopper
So often, I go out to photograph a specific subject, when out of nowhere, something much better than I envisioned presents itself. Here I was trudging through a muddy field for insects on daisy fleabane when a giant insect resembling an alien jumps into a flowering tree. It's like being a follower of Christ. You're going along as best you can thinking you have life all figured out, and He says, "Look! Over here! I have a better plan."
"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:9
